    I gotta ask why the hell he was let out of prison in the first place?
    IMO hacking your wife up is NOT second degree murder.
    Ok lets say the first time it was a crime of passion but the second??
    Why did he ever get a chance for a third?

    i think you are right about the first time. a jury was asked to find him guilty of first degree murder. they went with second degree. crime of passion. on the second murder the DA let him take a guilty plea of manslaughter.

    i would say the system failed.

    I asked the same question when I read it in the paper this morning. I can't imagine marrying someone who has killed once. To marry someone who has killed two previous wives is really beyond my understanding. What were they thinking?

    The perception of being in love really does blind people.
